“A fairy tale come true!”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

From the very beginning, we all felt at right home and completely comfortable as we were humbly greeted by their FABULOUS manager Mr Sam and the Director of Romance Miss
Velia. We got our suits all in the same building (east wing) with a stunning million dollar view
over the ocean and located not far from our wedding chapel. We had a great relaxing, no worry
stay from the first night on.
All week long we felt so spoiled by the staff. However, what meant the most to us was not the
impeccable and prompt service but the warm and genuine conversation we had with many of
the staff. You didn't just feel like another name here, you were a GUEST a FRIEND in their
spot. They even treated our 77 year old great Aunt like a rock star and she was all smiles the
whole week.
On the actual wedding day (with the help of Velia the Director of Romance) everything went
perfectly, without a hitch. and she was able to help with a few small last minute requests/room
needs the day of. The cocktail hour and the private dinner were perfect and oh my goodness...their FOOD. That is a whole other post in Samabe. We danced the on the outside of the restaurant and got to have the after party in Seminyak. From what we can tell all the big suites had a pretty unique touch to them and were great. Ocean Pool Villas was absolutely beautiful and great for a family that wanted more privacy and space I just can’t say enough how special these Balinese people are that work there. Their hospitality, their smiles and authenticity was so very refreshing.
Velia, Ralf and Sam - you have such a special place in our hearts and you will forever be part of our memory of this fairy tale of a week. Thank you!!

Room Tip: I would HIGHLY recommend this spot for any potential destination weddings. Feel free to message me...

This place is a gem. The service is amazing.

Knowing it was my birthday, there was a picnic and birthday cake prepared and waiting, and decorations in the villa - all birthday-themed.

Breakfast is the best I've had - order ala carte (it's part of the price anyway) as the buffet is not as interesting. Food is consistently good although the variety at lunch/dinner is limited.

I took my kids along and they enjoyed the small kids' club. Although small, again, it was the staff that made the difference. I also liked the fact that the villa pool (1.2m) and the resort pool (1m) were not too deep as that was good for the kids.

The private beach is very clean and beautiful. They post a staff there to look after your needs at the beach. There are some deck chairs laid out under a big tree which provided shade even at noon time. Loved it out there.

I do have a couple of minor complaints - (1) it's the extremely patchy wifi. However, as I was on holiday (and trying to relax/be out of contact), that didn't bother me much. (2) the villa i was in didn't have a great ocean view. But everything else was amazing, and the ocean wasn't too far away, so that's again not a big deal.

I stayed here with my husband last month and absolutely loved the Samabe. We had an 1 Bedroom Ocean Suite with amazing ocean views! The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Found all staff to be very professional and friendly!
Loved the infinity pool which over looks the ocean and also has a lovely pool bar.
Would definitely recommend this resort and cannot wait to return.

This idyllic resort is well situated with lovely gardens; the entry is a bamboo lined boulevard that opens up to a vista of beautiful villas.

The staff are very friendly and by far the stand out is the exceptional executive chef, Tashia Yunasz. I have travelled extensively and she is, by far, a perfectionist and an artist.

If you would like to experience true Balinese hospitality and service, visit the restaurant Rempah-Rempah. For example, breakfast this morning started with four vitamin juice shots served in test tubes accompanied by piping hot local coffee.

There is a fine international buffet but the star dishes are on the a la carte menu. I had the best foie gras I have ever tasted; silky smooth and finely balanced with a star fruit and onion jam. Then came a fluffy, perfectly seasoned omelette together with a mushroom ragout, light and crunchy hand crafted hash brown and crispy bacon. The pastry selection also deserves a mention and if you like good chocolate then you'll be smiling.

Nothing is too much trouble and the service is seamless. If nothing else, GO FOR THE FOOD! Thanks Chef!

This is one of the best resort in Bali with excellent service and view of the resort. Samabe is located on a cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean. It is very suitable for honeymoon, relaxing, or a celebration.

The ocean front suite I must commend that they have a excellent view which allow you to see the sun rise. In addition, you will able to enjoy the ocean view while sitting at the balcony. An advise for those couple who want to go there for honeynoon, I will RECOMMEND your to book OCEAN FRONT HONEYMOON POOL SUITE with ALL INCLUSIVE PACKAGE. Do remember to book directly from Samabe website at www.samabe.com . The reason why you book directly from their website is because you are able to communicate with them via email before your stay easier. Furthermore, they do include the free airport transfer via their private car. The All inclusive package do come with signature activities if you book more then 3 night. Their Signature activities is pretty interesting. Do remember to select "Private sunset tour to Uluwatu". You will be able to see beautiful sunset.

The service of the resort is excellent. The staffs are able to remember which room you stay, what is your name and so on. You will feel that Samabe is your house. From the way the staffs interact with the customer, I could tell that Samabe management have ensure that customer service is always their priority. The foods at Samabe is pretty good. All the food that you order are fresh made.

Lastly I would like to conclude that if you are planning for a honeymoon, retreat, or wedding, DO REMEMBER TO CHOOSE SAMABE. I WILL DEFINITELY GO BACK TO SAMABE FOR MY HOLIDAY AGAIN.

Room Tip: OCEAN FRONT POOL SUITE will always a good choice if you want to have a private pool that is facing t...

Dear HappyJason,

What a happy review just like your profile name!

Thank you for staying with us. We are very happy that you have been well taken care of during your stay and that our services surpassed your expectations.

Samabe is indeed the perfect place for honeymooners. One of the reasons why we placed telescopes in the rooms is to accommodate the newlyweds to have some romantic moments together. There is something truly magical about star-studded night sky. We also offer some special benefits for our honeymoon guests, and provide romantic dinner on our private beach or inside the cave at the beach. Soon we will also introduce Engagement Ideas Program. It is specially designed for those who want to propose their loved one and surprise them. Guests who want to book engagement ideas program just need to include the information when they make their reservation at reserv@samabe.com, and make sure they keep it a secret from their partner. :-)

Thank you for your very thorough and detailed review. We look forward to welcoming you back to our resort in the future.

Sincerely,

Ralf Luthe, General Manager at Samabe Bali Suites & Villas.

This is the nicest resort we've ever stayed at. Samabe is situated on a cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean, which means there are gorgeous views no matter where you are. The property is beautifully designed and landscaped. Our suite was massive. We had a giant balcony overlooking the ocean, a massive California king bed, and a gorgeous bathroom. We didn't want to leave our room, but there's lots to see and do on the resort property. There are several infinity pools, morning yoga, sea kayaking, catamaran sailing, cooking classes, and more. All inclusive guests have access to all of this, plus you have your own private butler who will unpack for you and deliver food right to your door. And the food! The food is out of this world. Gourmet, organic, and fresh! Samabe has two gourmet restaurants on site, and fantastic room service. I've got nothing bad to say about our experience there!
